Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) is seeking to revoke the bond allowing a defendant in the Georgia election interference case to stay free ahead of the trial.
On Wednesday, Willis’s office cited defendant Harison Floyd’s social media posts in a court filing, asserting they were in violation of the bond agreement he signed as a condition of release.
“Since his release from custody, the Defendant has engaged in numerous intentional and flagrant violations of the conditions of release ordered by the Court,” Willis’s motion states.
According to The Hill, a review of Floyd’s social media shows that the Trump co-defendant made numerous posts related to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Gabe Sterling, chief operating officer of the secretary of state’s office.
Floyd, a leader of Black Voices for Trump, was charged alongside the former president over Floyd’s alleged attempt to convince Fulton County election worker Ruby Freeman to make false statements about election operations on Election Day 2020, under the guise of offering her help. Floyd pleaded not guilty.
“Look, the truth is that @GaSecofState & @GabrielSterling are the pieces of [s—] you should be mad at,” Floyd tweeted on Nov. 7, using a poop emoji to replace the expletive.
He also made several posts about Freeman, including to release of audio of the Fulton County poll worker talking to police officers, which the Georgia district attorney’s office claimed constitutes “an act to intimidate a known witness.” Floyd suggested on social media that the audio proved he did not set up a meeting with Freeman and Trump allies who prosecutors say menaced her.
“Because of and in response to the Defendant’s intimidating communications, witness Ruby Freeman has been the subject of renewed threats of violence from third parties,” the filing reads.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee will ultimately decide whether to approve the request.
